I have a new server running Fedora Core3.

All the latest bf/patches/etc....

I have:
game.serverInternet 1

in serversettings.con, and i have no serverautoexec.con nor 

Also, the server starts up fine:

./ +statusMonitor 1

I have disabled the RH FC3 firewall

What else should I look at? Any ideas are greatly appreciated. I have 
had no problems getting it to run on RH 7.3, my other server is just fine.
